Best Picture Inspired Style: Hugo

 Hugo is about a young, orphan boy secretly living in the walls of a train station. He sets all of the clocks in the station and has a talent for fixing things, including the automaton, which is the only thing left of his father. He crosses paths with a cranky toy shop owner and his god-daughter, Isabelle. She is constantly reading, has a penchant for big words and is somewhat mischievous. I was immediately drawn to her. The setting is 1930s Paris in the winter. I found myself really admiring her cavalier mixture of stripes and plaids, as well as her combination of warm chunky sweaters, wool skirts and coats. Ingredients for the perfect winter look.
